Richard Morgan joins Aon as a principal with 30 years experience in employee benefits, most recently as Head of Vebnet (part of Standard Life Group) where he worked across a broad range of sectors. As a key strategic consultant at Aon, he will help organisations devise the right benefit strategy including measuring return on investment and balancing that with data insights, evolving ideas, assessing feasibility and auditing strategies.

Richard and Nick have years of experience in championing clients’ needs, and of ensuring employee benefits positively impact organisations and employees. Aside from their roles within Aon Scotland, they will also be working closely with the overall Aon UK employee benefits team to develop and implement the best possible options for clients nationwide.”
